Christmas gift ideas for your aspiring DC Comics writer/artist

Now that Halloween is over, is it safe to start talking about Christmas gift ideas? A couple of years ago I did a series of posts highlighting some ideas that might delight fans of various topics, and one of the most popular posts in that series related to comic book art. That particular post continues to get hits today, so I thought I would follow it up with a more streamlined version: Christmas gift ideas for your aspiring DC comic book writers/artists. Take a look at these titles in this series of “DC Comics Guide” books:
Batman

I have not personally reviewed any of those titles, but they seem to be geared toward an older, more serious dreamer. If your aspiring artist is a beginner, or is just getting his feet wet with sketching, the following books may be more his or her speed:
Wonder Woman

It just doesn’t get any better than this

It started September 13, when I read X-Entertainment’s blog about Halloweeny Pop Tarts. Immediately (meaning the next day) I went to Walmart to find these toaster pastries which were destined to become the greatest thing I have ever put in my mouth. But Walmart didn’t have them.

So I went to Kroger. And Remke. And Walgreens. Even Kmart. Read that again: even Kmart. But no one had Choc-o-Lantern Pop Tarts. They didn’t even have them on Amazon! (To be honest, I didn’t know Amazon sold Pop Tarts before I started this quest.)

But thanks to a tip from a co-worker, I found them last night. At Remke in another city. That’s right, I went out of my way to a store I had never patronized to purchase a box of toaster pastries.

And they were worth it.

But that’s not all…

As I was browsing the various goodies to be had, I spied this…

I love the Flash. He is probably my favorite comic book character. I have a Flash t-shirt. I wear it often. It probably needs to be replaced because I wear it too often. So I found it very difficult to resist these delicious-looking Flash Cakes. So difficult, that I didn’t resist them. Moments later…

…they were in the backseat of my car along with the Choc-o-Lantern Pop Tarts and a few other not-so-healthy snacks. Too bad I don’t like coconut, or I would have bought some Green Lantern Glo Balls too!

I am such a geek.

Ryan Reynolds is the perfect choice for this role. Hollywood better not mess it up.

You can see more Green Lantern posters over at the /film site.
